SEBRING Graduation
services are straight forward sec-
ular events designed to celebrate
student accomplishments while
redirecting graduates toward new
horizons.
The ceremonies are often a bit-
ter sweet blend of joy and nerv-
ous anticipation; saying goodbye
with one foot out the door.
The day, which for four years
seemed eons away and so slow in
coming, arrives with an unex-
pected jolt.
Typically the valedictorian,
salutatorian and senior class
president are called upon to
reflect upon their experiences
and express their hopes for the
future.
School administrators compli-
ment the graduating students,
who are always the best class
ever.
Parents beam, siblings squirm
and those in caps and gowns sit
thinking about the parties after.
Then the class becomes a pro-
cession of the successful a
line of individual people, each
collecting his or her diploma, the
sign of a job % ell done.
As suddenly as it arrived, the
graduation ceremony is over, dis-
appeared into a cloud of flashing
Slights, as cameras record the
moment.
In the graduation's whirlwind


of emotions it is often difficult to
pause for reflection.
This is one reason a separate
service, with roots just as ancient
as the actual graduation ceremo-
ny, has been making a comeback
in recent years.
It is called a baccalaureate and
is a Christian service, although
most programs respect the vari-
ety of religious belief found in
America.
A baccalaureate service is
meant to be a time of thanksgiv-
ing and calm contemplation, and
is typically held the Sunday
before graduation.
It was born out of medieval
traditions.
As early as 1432 students
graduating from O \ ford
University with a bachelor's
degree also known as a bac-
calaureate each had to deliver
a sermon in Latin.
As the United States of
America emerged from its colo-
nial beginnings, most university
graduates were educated in reli-
gion and became Christian min-
isters. They adapted the bac-
calaureate service which became
a tradition in its own rite.
However, o\ er the ear.. \ ith
the industrial re solution and
greater diversity on campuses.
baccalaureates fell out of favour.
Now there is a movement to

Conference: Prepare for hurricanes now


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING- Meteorologists
wanted to give some good news
to emergencN management offi-
cials at .the Governor's
Hurricane Conference in Fort
Lauderdale.
. Instead, they had to say 2006
xnill have at least 15 named
storms, seven of them major.
"We're going to have some,"
said J.P. Fane, Highlands
County sheriff's deputy and
delegate to the conference.

Fortunately, Florida has two

Emergency officials from as
far away as New York came to

KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Mothers, daughters, friends and colleagues laugh together Saturday morning, while listening to keynote
speaker Lynn McDonald during the Women's Eposium at South Florida Community College in Avon
Park. McDonald, author of 'Ladies ... If Your Horse Is Dead, Dismount!' spoke about taking charge of
life. More than 100 women from all over the Heartland and even one daughter who flew her mother in
from Indiana enjoyed a day of education, empowerment, endurance and building self-esteem on this spe-
cial day. It was a daylong event that pumped up women and helped them feel good about themselves. See

Relief 'poured in'
After Hurricane Katrina,
Florida relief "poured in" for
communities in Louisiana and
Mississippi, Fane said. Some
police departments lost their
stations and every home of
every officer.
Visiting law enforcement set
up temporary stations and han-
dled law enforcement under


local command while officers'
went to take care of their
homes, Fane said.
Similar situations happen in
Florida every year.
Weak links
The weakest link for Florida
and other states, is getting every
citizen to prepare for the worst,,
Fane said.
People should be self-sus-
taining for a week, at least four
days, with water, food, medica-
tion, fuel, shelter and sanitation.


Within that time frame. sup-
plies should arrive, Fane said.
The state emergency manage-
ment center stations supplies
outside impacted areas, ready to
come in.
Several counties are skilled
at providing points of distribu-
tion. getting supplies to those
sites. and getting the %word out

SEBRING County com-
missioners will discuss the pro-
posed long-range transportation
plan on Tuesday.
The plan outlines roads need-
ed in the next 25 years. The
Long-range Transportation
Committee recommended it at
its April 26 meeting, 6-5, with
one member abstaining.
An additional motion passed
unanimously to keep a pro-
posed County Road 635 exten-
sion out of the Golf Hammock
Subdivision.
An option there would have
the county swap Hammock
Road right of way through
Highlands Hammock State
Park, among other considera-
tions, for land on the eastern
side of the park, bordering the


subdivision.
The C.R. 635 extension from
State Road 66 to Schumacher
Road is still on the highest-pri-
ority needs map.
Commissioners and county
staff have not considered every
project for construction: Not
every project is feasible.
Tuesday's meeting is 9 a.m.
at the Government Center, 600
S. Commerce Ave., Sebring.
Other projects on the highest
priority map are listed below.
Schumacher Road -
Extend westward to the Hardee
County line to connect with
Steve Roberts Special, which
Hardee County plans to extend
eastward.
Cortez Boulevard -
Extend it as part of the C.R. 635
extension northward from
Schumacher Road to State


Road 64, through Avon Park
Estates.
Sebring Parkway Phase 3
(not yet built) Widen from
two lanes to four and connect to
proposed Avon Park Parkway.
Avon Park Parkway -
Purchase right of way and
design and build a road to
extend the parkway system
north through downtown Avon
Park, past Lake Tulane and
roughly along Lake Avenue to
County Road 17A.
County Road 17A -
Widen the county road to four
lanes to connect Avon Park
Parkway to U.S. 27.
New development road -
Build a new divided boulevard
roughly in line with Davis
Citrus Road between U.S. 27
and Memorial Drive in cooper-


ation with a proposed develop-
ment on 335 acres of grove
land.
Hammock Road Widen
Hammock Road to four lanes
between Lakewood Road and
U.S. 27.
Lakewood Road -
Extend north to connect with
Howey Road and south to con-
nect directly with S.R. 66.
Howey Road Extend
west into Sebring Hills subdivi-
sion.
Sparta Road Widen to
four lanes.
U.S. 98/S.R. 66 Widen
to four lanes between C.R. 635
and Haywood Taylor Boule-
vard, the entrance to Sebring
Regional Airport.
U.S. 27 to Landings Road
- Widen to six lanes between


U.S. 98 and Landings Road, a
road proposed as a shortcut for
Cloverleaf Road, north of Lake
Placid.
Daffodil Street Extend
and improve to connect Leisure
Lakes and Placid Lakes subdi-
visions.
Tangerine Avenue, Lake
Placid Extend and improve
to create better north/south cir-
culation on the west side of the
town.
Lake Groves Road -
Extend Lake Groves Road to
connect Placid Lakes subdivi-
sion to U.S. 27, by way of Lake
Mirror Drive.
State Road 70 Improve
State Road 70 to four lanes,
which is already a project being
studied by the Florida
Department of Transportation.


Local memorial for Fallen Law

Enforcement Officers is Monday

~


The Highlands County
Sheriff's Office, along with the
Sebring, Avon Park and Lake
Placid police departments,
would like the public to attend
the Annual Memorial for Fallen
Law Enforcement Officers at
9:30 a.m. Monday.
This year's event will be held
in front of the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office.
The sad fact is that in any
year ,an average of approxi-
mately 150 law enforcement
officers will give their life in
protecting our way of life. Last
year there were' 156 law
enforcement officers that were
killed in the line of duty.
The guest speaker Monday
will be State Representative
Denise Grimsley. As we go
placidly about our daily activi-
ties it is easy to forget those that


provide us with this wonderful
American way of life. The
individuals that we so often for-
get are the peace keepers of our
society.
The police, sheriff's or state
officers that daily go about their
business (work) ensuring that
we. don't Worry about our free-
doms. As the Bible says
-Blessed are the Peacekeepers:
for the\ shall be c.lled-the chil-
Jren of God.."
iThese children of God often
see things or have to do thins
that most people often could
not even imagine. They do
these things daily and then
(hopefully) return to their fami-
lies. This day is set aside for
those individuals that do not
return at all. They go to work
and for what ever reason never
return.

Authority's new director



enthusiastic about future


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
AVON PARK There's a
new Avon Park Housing
Authority executive director in
town, replacing recently retired
Alice Oldham. .;
Larry Shoeman was intro-
duced to during Monday night's
city council meeting by housing
authority chairman Lester
Roberts, where he was greeted
with a round of applause.
"I have been informed that I
have some \ern tall shoes to fill,
and a lot of challenges ahead,"
Shoeman said, "but I plan to
meet them."
Having spent more than 22
years in assisted housing man-
agement over half as execu-
tive director, Shoeman is well
equipped to lead the APHA. He
praised the work of his prede-
cessor saying that she has done
an outstanding job and is leav-
ing the housing authority in
excellent shape.
In a letter of introduction
written to the housing authority
residents, Shoeman assured
them of his qualifications and
gave them heads-up, letting
them know what they could
expect from him.


SEBR

"First, I believe in open com-
munication," he wrote. "You
will find that my style of lead-
ership encourages a consistent
flow of information both from
you as an APHA client, as well
as from us as your agency.
Secondly, you will most likely
see changes in the way we do
business. Those changes will be
made in accordance with the
Mission Statement, of the
APHA, with the ultimate goal
of providing decent, safe, and
economically sound housing
for you, our clients."
Shoeman referred to himself
as "somewhat of a promoter of
Best Practice duplication,"
explaining that if a program or
project implemented by another
agency has proven to be benefi-
cial and successful and might
work at the APHA, "we may
look at doing the same here."
A similar letter of introduc-
tion was sent to the APHA staff
prior to his arrival. In it he gave
a "snapshot" of his background
of previous experience and edu-
cation, while offering snippets
of insight into his personality
through witty interjections.

lescent years in Barberton,

Ohio (yeah, I'm a Yankee!!),"
he wrote, immediately fol-
lowing up with "but moved to
South Florida (Boynton Beach)
in the late 60s, graduated from
Florida State University (yeah,
I'm a Seminole) in the mid-
70s."
He was a teacher for a time,
but wrote, "I decided I wanted
to keep my sanity, so I went into
public service (go figure!)."
Shoeman considers his style
of management what some
would call "the 'Firm but Fair'
approach."
He suggested the staff read a
small book entitled "Who
Moved My Cheese," explaining
that it would provide them with
some background on some of
the references he will be mak-
ing as "we move the cheese
around at the APHA."
Shoeman is busy taking
advantage of Oldham's agree-
ment to help him get a good
solid start by showing him all
the ropes.
"She was kind enough to
dedicate those two weeks to
helping me and I'm trying to
make sure I soak up as much as
I possibly can during that time,"
he'said.

Trains setting off grass fires


on Old State Road 8 Friday


News-Sun
SEBRING Firefighters and police spent the
hottest part of Friday afternoon standing near Old
State Road 8 fighting grass and brush fires.
They didn't get sparked by carelessly tossed
cigarettes, however. Lake Placid Police Chief
Phil Williams suspects train wheels set off these
fires.
Conditions have gotten so dry this season,
especially along Old State Road 8 and other rural
areas, that little brush fires have started along the


train tracks, he said. That or any carelessness
with fire by anyone will result in a major fire.
On Friday, Lake Placid Volunteer Fire
Department called for help from Leisure Lakes
Volunteer Fire Department for fires burning from.
1-4:30 p.m. the same thing happened during the
first week of May, he said, with brush fires burn-
ing behind Tropical Harbor Mobile Home
Estates.
"There's a lot of fuel out there now," Williams
said.

Highlands County reports


Reynolds
charged with.
throwing
deadly missiles

at vehicle
SEBRING An apparent
road rage incident landed a
local woman in jail on a
charge of aggravated battery
and throwing a deadly missile
into an occupied vehicle.
SDonna
Wolf
Reynolds, 40,
of Lake
Placid, was
S'arrested April
27 and held

REYNOLDS on $100,000
blanket bond.
The victim told Highlands
County sheriff's deputies that
at 12:30 p.m. that day she
was driving on U.S. 27 when
a van pulled in behind her,
driving aggressively.
The victim turned onto
Schumacher Road, then onto
Corvette Avenue, when the
driver of the van, later identi-
fied as Reynolds, threw a
bottle of orange, liquid at her.
According to arrest reports,
it later turned out to be an
orange Arizona Iced Tea bot-
tle.
The victim stopped her
vehicle and checked for dam-
age, at which point, accord-
ing to records, Reynolds
pulled her van forward and
pinned the victim .against her
vehicle, without making con-
tact.
The victim, holding a
thick-gauge wire she alleged-


ly carried for protection,
struck Reynolds' van in an
attempt to make her move
back.
Reports said Reynolds did
back up slightly, then pulled
forward, hitting the victim,
pushing her into her vehicle.
When deputies questioned
Reynolds, she told them she
tried to go around the victim,
standing in the road, and only
hit her by accident.
A witness driving in the
area at the time, said
Reynolds had enough room
to go around the victim safely
without striking her.
The victim's car was
pulled back at the corner,
consistent with a hole in
Reynolds front bumper, arrest
reports said.

side.
Reports said two security
guards for the lounge were
among the people he threat-
ened. They had asked several
people, including Hussain, to
leave the lounge and take
their argument with them,
reports said.
A Highlands County sher-
iff's deputy found and
stopped Hussain at a Valerie
Boulevard address, where the
security guards identified him
as the man who had bran-
dished a black, smaller-cal-
iber automatic handgun.
When questioned under
Miranda rights, Hussain said
he had a gun under the seat
of his car that matched that
description. However, he said
he didn't have it on him that
night.
He said he only put his
hand in his pocket, to act as
if he had a gun, but did not
threaten anyone with it.

Valeria Pat Ritter,84, of Sebring, died April 28, 2006, in
York, South Carolina. Born in Montreal, Canada, she came to the
states in 1938 as a dancer with a troupe in Chicago, IL. She had been
a resident of Sebring since 1981. She was social director of Miami
Yacht Club in the 1960's, a real estate agent, Home & Estate
Renovator, with her husband in the 1970's, and a co-owner of Shade
Cloth of America in the 70's and 80's. She was a volunteer in the "Big
Sister" program in Miami and Sebring and a house manager for
Highlands Little Theater. She attended Unity of Sebring Church and
Unity of Charlotte, NC. Pat had resided with her daughter, Suzy
Newman, RN and grandsons since September of 2005. Pat, always
with an "independent spirit" recently returned to her home in Sebring
for a short stay in March before returning to her home in SC to con-
tinue medical treatments for a swallowing disorder. Pat had a passion
for life and a creativity that was unmatched. She beautified her every
surrounding. Her daughter and grandchildren, Emilyna, Jesse, and
Joshua, felt blessed with her presence over the past 8 months and
were with her when she made her transition back to Divine Love, and
a reuniting with her beloved husband Lee Ritter. Pat, always a stu-
dent of life taught us by example that life has no limitations except
those we self-impose. She is survived by her daughter Suzy Newman
of York, SC; brother Karl Golinski of Toronto, Canada and 3 grandchil-
dren. She is preceded in death by her sister Emily Joan Golinski and
husband John Ritter. A private service was held at her daughter's
home in York, SC on April 29, 2006, and was arranged-and presided
over by Suzy Newman. Last Rites were given on April 23, 2006 by
Father John Giuliani. Cremation arrangements were handled by
Bratton Funeral Home in York, SC. Memorial contributions can be
made to Pat's favorite radio station, National Public Radio WFAE
Charlotte, NC.


Remember
When The Word

"Service" Meant

Something?
We remember when people took the time to
serve others. Our family has been helping
families here for many years. A our town
has grown, we have grown too, with more
specialized services, such as out-of-town
arrangements, pre-arrangements, cremations
and a grief recovery program. Even though
we have grown, our dedication to service is
still the same as it was years ago. And, we
think that's really something.

Seniors recognized for achievements


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING For years
Highlands County businesses,
service organizations and indi-
viduals have been generous in
their support of graduating sen-
iors.
From South Florida
Community College's invest-
ment of full scholarships to the
top 10 percent of each graduat-
ing class, to scholarships given
by small businesses like Quick
Lube of Lake Placid, Highlands
County has raised an impres-
sive amount of money to help
defray college costs.
One organization alone,
Scholarship Recognition Inc.
raised $18,000 this year.
In addition to awarding the
county's valedictorians and
salutatorians, and the student at
each high school with the high-
est SAT scores, the organization
awarded 70 $200 scholarships
at random to honor roll students
attending its annual banquet
held May 6.
Connie Scobey, secretary to
The School Board of Highlands
County and an organizer of the
event, wants people to know
that creating an estate bequest
benefiting the foundation is a
wonderful way to help young
people afford college while
remembering a loved one.
In fact there were numerous
memorial scholarships awarded
this year.
The Joe Franza Memorial
Award, The Rev. James Reeb
Memorial Scholarship, the
Becky Davis Memorial Scho-
larship, the Janette Branham
Memorial Scholarship and the
Cindy Helms Memorial Award
are examples; there were many
more.
In round numbers, not
including SFCC's contribution,
or scholarships won by students
from the universities they will
attend, or money from the mili-
tary or National Merit Scho-lar-
ships, Highlands County raised
a little over $187,000 this year.
The people in Lake Placid
raised $102,200 of that amount.
"I think the graddLates owe.
the communism j debt of
thanks," Ruth Hecnian., princi-
pal of Lake Placid High School,
said at the school's awards cer-
emony.
The students agreed, rising to
their feet and applauding the
audience.
Ironically, some scholarships
went unfulfilled this year. In
some cases students might not
have been aware of the opportu-
nity, but others couldn't be
bothered to write the essay or
fill in the paperwork required,
several guidance counselors
said.
The work is worth the effort.
Rachel Barber, of Lake
Placid High School, earned
$15,900 in accumulated schol-
arships 'from the FFA, the
Florida Realtors Association,
the Highlands County Bar
Association, the Lake Placid
Garden Club, Lykes Spring Hill
Foundation, and Noon Rotary.

0 FACIAL SCULPTING
(As seen on ABC, CBS & NBC News)
Beautiful Image Facial Sculpting- is an effective, more natural alternative to any other
non-surgical cosmetic treatment available today, because it simply induces the skin and
muscles of aging clients back to a more youthful state, while preserving and maintaining
it in younger clients. Relying only on customized wave forms of Microcurrent and specially
1! formulated skin support, the complete benefits of Microcurrent Facial Sculpting include:
Diminishes or eliminates fine lines, creases, and wrinkles
Hydrates and revitalizes skin, making it smoother and softer
Improves blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.
Visibly firms and contours, lifting the overall droop
Reduces puffiness under the eyes

LAKE BUENA VISTA -
Getting good grades has never
been so rewarding! On May 12,
the red carpet was rolled out at
Disney-MGM Studios for a
hand-picked group of high
achieving students from
Sebring High School. The inau-
gural Disney Academic
AchievEars Celebration recog-
nized students selected by
schools throughout Florida with
a private event and entertain-
ment at the Disney Theme Park.
Astronaut Dr. Sally Ride, gold-
medal gymnast Dominique
Dawes and sports celebrity
'Rookie' Jim Morris spoke to
the students about achievement
during the event.
"Teens today work hard in
school to maintain their focus
and make high marks. The
Disney Academic AchievEars
Celebration was created to help
motivate students throughout
the year and drive their desire to
excel," said Tim Hill, director


of special programs for the Walt
Disney World Resort. "We
believe that educators will
appreciate the' event for moti-
vating and rewarding their stu-
dents, and the students will love
the great entertainment and'
exclusive use of popular attrac-
tions like, Rock 'n' Roller
Coaster Starring Aerosmith. It's
going to be a lot of fun."
Dr. Sally Ride has four
degrees including a Ph.D in
Physics from Stanford
University. She became an
astronaut after answering an
advertisement in the newspaper.
Her first of two flights was
aboard the space shuttle
Challenger in 1983. A few years
later, she served as. a member of
the Presidential Commission
investigating the Challenger
accident and later also served
on the Columbia accident
investigation. She is the only
person to serve on both investi-
gations.
Ride has written five books


and is currently a professor of
physics at the University of
California, San Diego and CEO
of Imaginary Lines, Inc, also
known as Sally Ride Science.
The: corporation publishes
materials aimed at encouraging
careers in math, science and
engineering. She has been
inducted into the National
Women's Hall of Fame and the
Astronaut Hall of Fame.
Originally a top prospect,
Jim Morris' career in baseball
was derailed by injuries at the
age of 24. He became a high
school physics teacher and
baseball coach in southwest
Texas. At the age of 35, he
made a bet with his struggling
high school baseball team: If
they won the district champi-
onship, then he would try out
for a major league team.
Miraculously, his team won the
district championship and he
went to a tryout, where he threw
twelve consecutive pitches at
98 mph.

those parts of the country with a
strong Christian tradition.
Here in Highlands County,
all three high schools will be
holding baccalaureate services.
Each school's graduating
class selected their guest speak-
ers.
Andrew Katsanis, the popu-
lar pastor with Youth for
Christ, will be addressing the
Sebring High School seniors at
the First Baptist Church of


Sebring.
Richard Norris, a school
board member and Lutheran
minister whose son Brian is
graduating this year, will be
speaking to the Lake Placid
High School's senior class at
Memorial United Methodist
Church.
David Conrad, pastor of the
Bethany Baptist Church whose
son Paul is a member of the
senior class, will be addressing
Avon Park students at the First
Baptist Church in Avon Park.
Seating is limited at the bac-
calaureate services, and will be
on first come, first seated basis.

SEBRING Residents have
divided loyalty to off-premises
signs.
For people unfamiliar to an
area, an off-site sign helps them
find a business, festival, or
house for sale.
People who live in Highlands
County all year may consider
off-premises signs an eyesore
cluttering roadways or a safety
hazard blocking the view at
intersections.
As presented on Tuesday, a
proposed county sign regula-
tion would have kept business-
es from putting up an off-prem-
ises sign unless an existing sign
is removed.
Commissioner Bob Bullard
said it seemed like "overkill."
The Florida Department of
Transportation doesn't allow
signs on a public right of way.
He said the number of bill-
boards and roadside signs is
limited by speed limits, traffic
flow and sight distance.
County Attorney Ross
Macbeth said having a sign
ordinance would help preserve
the look of Highlands County
without any more billboards
than it has now.
However, the Florida
Legislature has just passed a
bill, ready for Governor Jeb
Bush's signature, to prevent
anyone from growing trees or
bushes within 500 feet of a bill-
board, or that would obscure a
billboard from motorists.
Rather than fight the state,
county commissioners opted
against changing the county's
sign regulations, but Macbeth


said it needs more study.
Left unchecked, he said,
roadside signs can become a
problem.
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart said she would like the
county to enforce existing laws

Category 1 hurricane and could

Fane said.
Last year, some people tried
to wait out Category 1 storm in
Key West, Broward County and
Metro Dade County, because it
wasn't a Category 5, Fane said.
They didn't stock up while
the storm was at sea, then made
a mad dash and depleted gro-
cery stores.


on roadside signs before creat-
ing new ones.
She recalled seeing 79 off-
premises signs in the road right
of way in one week.
A substantial number of
signs are confiscated each year.


Teamwork
Other states have helped
Florida the way it helps, Fane
said: 39 states sent aid in 2004.
Even if they can't provide full-
scale recovery, Florida agencies
and local governments are set
up to accept donated resources
and use them quickly.
It's a marriage of state and
federal resources Fane credits
to Craig Fugate, director of the
Florida Department of
Emergency. Management.

Three months later, Morris
realized his long-lost dream of
becoming a major league play-
er. In his first major league
appearance in front of family
and friends in Texas, Morris
struck out All-Star Royce
Clayton.
Dominique Dawes got her
start in gymnastics at the age of
six and began competing at age
10. She burst into the interna-
tional spotlight in the 1992
Olympics in Barcelona, Spain.
She was the first African-
American gymnast to qualify
and compete in the Olympic
Games, and she and her team-
mates captured a bronze medal.
At the 1996 Olympic Games
Dawes and the United States
Gymnastics Team won the team
gold medal, and Dawes made
history again as the first
African-American to win an
individual gymnastics medal
with her bronze on the floor
exercise.
As a result of her determina-
tion and ability, Dawes has
received several awards,
including the 1995 Henry P. Iba
Citizen Award, presented to
outstanding athletes that have
demonstrated good citizenship,
the 1997 Essence Award, and
the 2004 AAUW "Women of
Distinction" award.
Disney Academic
AchievEars Celebration is open
to students in grades seven
through 12, chosen by their
school for high achievement.
Each school will decide its own
selection criteria.

cussions of what went wrong

"You can write the best plan
in the world," Fane said, "and
Mother Nature can rip it apart."
In one example, emergency
officials in Florida have started
carrying more than one cellular
phone, in case one system fails.
So, being flexible is the key.
The answer, Fane said, must
.never be "no" or "not my job."
but muit be "I can get it done.
(so) let's get it done."

polished team of newspaper pro-
fessionals at the News-Sun.
Already regarded as 'High-
lands County's hometown
newspaper,' I hope to strength-
en that position by enhancing
service, expanding circulation,
and building upon the local fla-
vor of the news," Wigginton
said.
An avid newspaperman,
Wigginton has shared his pas-
sion by teaching university and
high school classes on
"Newspaper Advertising," and
"Sales Promotion," and has
been a featured speaker at
Newspaper Association of
America, American Marketing
Association, and other civic and
professional groups. He also
has served on several industry
and community board of direc-
tors.
"I love newspapers, and I
love newspaper people. We
play an important role in the
lives of our readers and area
residents. The 'ability to cover
local government, schools,
sports and cultural events in
detail is a strength that sets us
apart from most dailies. We are
often quite literally the voice
and conscience of the commu-
nity.
"I take seriously the respon-
sibility we have to provide up-
to-date and accurate reporting,
top quality customer service,


dependable distribution and
effective advertising. I recog-
nize that readers have to feel
good about their choice of
media, and retailers have to feel
good about their choice of
advertising vehicle."
Though the Wiggintons have
enjoyed the Sunshine State on
short trips, they are looking for-
ward to making the Heartland
their home. "I immediately fell


in love with the beautiful lakes
and rich heritage of the
Sebring/Avon Park/Lake Placid
areas. My wife and I have long
considered the state of Florida
to be our favorite vacation
spot," he said.
Wigginton has been married
for 33 years, and is the father of
four children a son aged 30,
and three daughters ages 28,
26 and 18.

Tr~ N :T

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


No damage

to report

It was good news for my
back, but bad news for the col-
umn when I arrived to work at
Laye's Tire Service, 1092
Locke St., Avon Park.
Turns out Matt Laye, the
third generation to work at the
family owned business, takes
his responsibility to his cus-
tomers seriously.
That means there was no
way he was going to allow me
to even change a tire or get
close enough to any car where
I might do some damage.
Part of me didn't mind at
all. I've changed my share of
tires over the years, and it's a
messy, back wrenching busi-
ness.,
The worst time I ever had,
and the most embarrassing,
occurred a long time ago when
I was still in college and in
much better shape.
It was early evening on a
sparsely traveled road going
into a suburb.. Without warning
the car began to shake and
then that telltale thlump,
thlump, thlump sound started.
I pulled onto the shoulder,
manhandled the spare and jack
out of the trunk, which of
coui se v% %t filled with boxes
because I was leaving for the
University of Miami the next,

Then came the trouble. ,,

e----- Tire specialists


Layes maintain longtime business


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Laye's Tire
Service, 1092 Locke St., was
established in its present loca-
tion in 1996.
But that doesn't mean the
business is new.
In fact, the Laye family has
been a fixture in Avon Park for
decades ever since Oscar
"Bill" Laye and his wife Sybil,
working side by side, opened
their full service Chevron sta-
tion on Main Street in 1958.
Bill Laye was born in
Sarasota in 1925. After serving
in World War II he moved back
to Florida in the mid 1940s.
His sons, Don and Ron were
born and raised in Highlands
County. They began working
with their parents while they
were both in high school. Ron
started full time in 1967, and
Don in 1969.
Bill Laye continued to run
the station until 1980 when his
sons bought it from him.
Even then he worked part-
time for several years. Finally
retired, Bill Laye died a year
and a half ago.
In 1996, the brothers remod-
eled the service station, turning
it into a convenience store
which still sold gasoline, after
moving the service portion of
the business to its present loca-
tion.
A third generation has joined
the family business. Matt Laye,
Ron's son, helps manage the
shop, while his cousin; Laurie
Laye Wolfe, Don's daughter,
runs the front desk.
Now Laye's Tire Service spe-
. cializes-in selling and rep.irinug
tires, although it also does rou-
tine auilomotie mhintentance


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Matt Laye follows in his family's footsteps. He helps manage the business his grandfather founded with a full service Chevron station in
1958. Ron Laye, Matt's father, and Matt's uncle Don expanded it to Laye's Tire Service in 1996.


and minor repairs, like chang-
ing oil, or doing brake jobs.
Tires and their care has
changed radically over the
years, Ron Laye said. One of
the big breakthroughs was the
invention of the radial tire dur-
ing the '60s.
But just as innovative are the
nev. cromptiierized machines.
which can properly 'iaanfiae -a
tire in a matter of seconds and


the machines designed to
remove a tire from its rim.
That is important because it
isn't safe to repair a radial tire
puncture with plugs, Ron Laye
said.
The tire can separate.
Instead, the tire is removed
from the rim and repaired with
a patch applied to the inside.
The patch is glued into place,
then, with the air pressure


pressing against it, it forms a
firm fix.
With the machine rapidly
removing and then replacing
the rim, a tire can be repaired in
less than 10 minutes.
Typically the valve stem is
checked, and the tire made wet
with soap and water to double
check and be isure all the leaks
have been lI'tnd iand ti\ed.
The trick is to be thorotigh


and know where to look.
All generations of Layes
enjoy what they do. It is diffi-
cult to find knowledgeable help
that also is reliable, but other-
wise they say, life is good.
Laye's Tire Service is open
from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Monday through Friday. and
from 7 a.m. to.noon Saiurday.
The telephone number is 453-
3333...

DAMAGE
Continued from 13A
Even though I had youth on
my side, I couldn't loosen the
lug nuts which some earlier,
over cautious (or simply sadis-
tic) mechanic had tightened
with a pneumatic drill.
I must have spent a half an
hour trying to leverage the nuts
loose using a short handled tire
iron, but I couldn't budge any
of them.
Worse, I'd been on my way
to a formal family dinner my
parents had expected me to
attend, but one about which I'd
complained bitterly about hav-
ing to go. This was long before
cell phones so I couldn't even
call to let them know why I
was late.
There I was in the deepening
dark, wearing my one good
suit, white shirt and a tie, try-
ing to keep clean while trying
to get the job done, armed with
the perfect excuse, but know-
ing my mother especially
would be convinced I was act-
ing out of spite. There was no
way around it I was in real-
ly hot water.
But despite all the despera-
tion produced adrenaline I still
couldn't get that infernal tire
changed.
I finally had to admit defeat,
and after several tries, man-
aged to wave down a passing
motorist for help.
It eased my ego some when
the mechanic couldn't get the
lug nuts off easily either, but
was embarrassed all over again
when it turned out the spare


was flat too.
I called my family from the
service station to let them
know why I was late, drank a
grape Nehi and got back on my
way, arriving at my uncle's
house just in time for coffee.
To her dying day my mother
remained convinced I'd done it
all on purpose.
All of which is why I wasn't
terribly disappointed when I
wasn't allowed to work at
Laye's.
In any case things have
changed a great deal from
1969, when my debacle took
place. Tires are better made
and there are new high-tech
computerized machines that
are used to work with them.
There are things we can all
do to lower the chances for a
flat or blow out. In fact, it
turns out good tire care can
increase a car's efficiency and
help get better mileage.
The most important thing is
to regularly check the tires
visually. Look for punctures,
cracks, or bulges and pay
attention to the tread wear.
Tire manufacturers recom-
mend removing a tire when its
tread reaches a depth of 2/32s
of an inch. Most tires have a
indicators, known as wear bars,
which look like narrow strips
of smooth rubber across the
.tread. When the wear bars
emerge, it's time to replace the
tire.
Just as important check
your tire's air pressure regular-
ly, at least twice a month, and
especially before a long trip.
It is best to check air pres-
sure when the tires are cool -


that is when they've sat for
three hours and been driven
less than a mile. Remember to
check your spare at the same
time (or you'll end up like I
did).
According to CarJunky.conm,
under inflated tires can run hot
and shorten the life of your
tire. They also can rob you of
mileage, up to 4 percent for
every five pounds a tire is
under inflated.
Ron and Don Laye, the
owners of the business, told me
how important it is to keep
tires properly inflated.
A cold snap, Ron Laye said,
can lower tire pressure. Too lit-
tle pressure will wear out the
edges of a tire. A tire run at 15
pounds below recommended
pressure can wear out in a mat-
ter of three weeks.
A tire with too much air
pressure will wear out in the
middle.
At Laye's they will check air
pressure for free.
Ron Laye also said it is
important to rotate tires on a
regular basis.
He told about one woman
who has her inexpensive tires
rotated every 3,000 miles. She
has run them for 25,000 miles,
and they are still going strong.

Next week Christopher
Tuffley works in a school
kitchen where he promises not
to start an end of year food
fight. For details on how to be
highlighted in a Tuffin'It With
Tuffley feature call 385-6155,

Local MOAA to observe Armed Forces Day


May 20 with a tribute to JROTC instructors


Special to the News-Sun
The local chapter of the
Military Officers Association of
America will be observing
Armed Forces Day on Saturday
with a salute to the instructors
of the six Junior ROTC units in
South Central Florida.
The Junior ROTC units
instructors being recognized are
from the Avon Park Air Force
Junior ROTC, Sebring Air
Force Junior ROTC, Lake
Placid Army Junior ROTC,
Okeechobee Army Junior
ROTC, Arcadia Army Junior
ROTC and the Air Force Junior
ROTC at Wauchula.
Speaker for the occasion will
be retired Navy Commander El
Ahlwardt, Director of External
Relations and Development for
the Joint Military Science
Center located on the campus of
the University of South Florida
in Tampa.
The Joint Military Science
Center (or JMSLC, or Center)
is at the University of South
Florida was established in
September 2004 with the mis-
sion of "providing the student-
cadet/midshipmen/officer can-
didates who participate in
ROTC at the University level


with Joint, Multinational,
NGO's/PVO's/IO's and
Interagency care competencies
and skills in leadership devel-
opment, global understanding
and military/national defense
strategies." The ROTC program
at the University of South
Florida in Tampa is one of only
38 universities/colleges in
America's total of 328 with an
ROTC program with all branch-
'es of the Armed Services repre-
sented on a single campus.
The Candlelight Restaurant
of the Sun 'N Lake Golf and
Country Club will be the site of
the luncheon and all MOAA
members and guests are invited
to attend. Interested parents and
school officials are also wel-
come to hear more about this
only-one-of-a-kind program.
Ahlwardt is a 20-year veteran
of the U.S. Navy and served as
a surface warfare officer includ-
ing duty as a passive and active
anti-submarine officer as well
as ship's navigator. He was the
public affairs officer (and a
plank owner) on the battleship
USS Wisconsin (BB-64).
During the Navy PAO career,
he served at the U.S. Navy War
College and retired after serv-


ing as the Navy element com-
mander and director of public
affairs at the Defense
Information School then locat-
ed at Fort Benjamin, Harrison,
Ind.
Ahlwardt holds a bachelor's
degree from Florida State and a
master's degree from San
Diego State University.
Married to his college sweet-
heart Kathy, the couple are par-
ents of two Indiana University
graduates Kathy and Ryan.
Both parents come from mili-
tary families, Ahlward's father
retired from the Navy in 1960
and Kathy's father retired from
the Air Force in 1979.
The Joint Military Science
Leadership Center was opened
September 2004 with Congress-
man C.W. "Bill" Young with
USF President Judy Genshaft
helping to cut the ribbon.
Surrounding the event were
USF ROTC commanders, civil-
ian and military dignitaries as
well as ROTC students. Among
those that were involved in the
development of the planned
Center in addition to Congress-
man Young and Genshaft, there
was Army General Tommy
Franks and other Department of


Defense officials.
Reservations may be made

Backup generators installed across city


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING An additional
15 generators at various lift sta-
tions will help prevent a big
stink over sewage should
Sebring be knocked powerless
by another hurricane.
The 35 lift stations in
Sebring pump raw sewage to
the city's treatment plant at the
end of Cemetery Road, Bob
Boggus, administrative coordi-
nator, said.
The new Tradewinds genera-
tors will augment the 10 already
in place.
"When power was off for
extended periods of time we
had to bring out portable gener-
ators," Boggus said, recalling
the round-the-clock efforts of
the four sewage treatment
plants and other city employees
during the 2004 hurricane sea-
son. "It was time consuming."
Installation is set to be com-
pleted June 1, he said.
A $258,000 Rural Develop-
ment Grant was used to pur-
chase seven backup generators
and the city bought the remain-
ing eight at a cost of $249,000
- the price difference comes
from generator size.
The larger generators, pur-
chased by the grant, are being
installed at the larger-volume


lift stations, Boggus said.
"Given enough time, they
could back up into a residence,"
he said, explaining that that
hasn't happened recently.


Boggus said the greater con-
cern is sewage overflowing the
pump station and getting into
wells, on the ground, or into the
lakes.

Avon Park High School senior poster


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
This year's senior poster, an annual tradition at Avon Park High School, was designed and exe-
cuted by Sarah Davis, Deanna Flowers, Ciara Shaw and Adam Singletary. The artists were hon-
ored at Avon Park High School's Senior Awards night on Tuesday.


Sun 'N Lake to get reclaimed


water from city of Avon Park


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING In the last two
weeks, Sun 'N Lake of Sebring
has made big decisions on
improving its waste water sys-
tem.
On Thursday, the board of
supervisors approved a plan, 5-
0, to have Avon Park provide
reclaimed water to irrigate the
improvement district's golf
course.
The proposal will go to the
city very soon. Sun 'N Lake
will send its effluent to the
city's water treatment plant
where it will be treated and then
sent back.
C.B. Shirey, city manager,
said Sun 'N Lake will pay the
cost of putting in the pipes to
and from the plant site, located
on the west side of U.S. 27,
south of the U.S. National
Guard Armory and just north of


the district boundary.
The city will have to increase
capacity, which is 1.5 million
gallons of waste water per day.,
Of that, 750,000 gallons come,
firm Iic city. Sun 'N Lale will
add about 500,000 gallons per
day.
Plans are to incic.ase capjcili
to 3 million gallon, per dj3 b3
June 1, 2008, Shire\ said, at a
cost of $11-12 million. The city
and district will split the cost of
that upgrade, he said, based on
how much of that capacity they
are using. :
He said the city has, applied
to the Florida Department of
Environmental Priiecton fir .
roving fund to build the plant.
Having a regional and reuse
project will help the city and
district because both the
Department of Environmental
Protection and the Southwest
Florida Water Management


District consider it a regional
project. That will earn credit
and help when modifying the
city's water permit when it's
renewed in 2009 when
renewed.
The city will charge Sun 'N
Lake to treat the waste water,
Shirey said, at a wholesale rate.
The district will get back
reclaimed water for free, as
long as it's less than the amount
sent to be treated.
Right now, the district is the
only one wanting effluent,
Shirei said, but the city plans to
require any future develop-
ments that want water and
sewer to put in infrastructure
for a reuse system.
Supervisors have also
approved fixing a new control
panel at the district's water
treatment plant and a new gen-
erator for backup power at the
Hampton Woods lift station.

--y yo-.ur supervisors or your peers. The residents in your care-
live each day waiting for your smile, your kind words and
your touch. It's you that they' learn to care to see.
Sometimes, you in fact become their only family.














Note from (the Administrator.
I began my tenure with Royal Care of Avon Park almost four years
ago. and there have been many changes: challenges such as the
major hurricanes that we have been faced with over the past two
seasons. nursing shortages, change of ownership a year ago. and all
in all. Royal Care of Avon Park has continually made improvements
in all ways to provide the best of skilled care and rehabilitation for
our Residences. We are an old facility. but that old saying "You can-
not .judge a book by its cover' sure does apply to us. We may not be
fancy, but we pride ourselves on our cleanliness and ability to pro-
vide GREAT Resident care to those who need us. I am particularly
proud of our facility and Great Staff. We invite everyone to come
visit the facility but especially our Residents, TLC is a crucial part
of the healing process, we give lots of it. but there is always room for
more.

muakc u ork even harder: Hail 10to you the care givers for choosing to continue this
career of onlv love. Thank you for joining this dynasty of care.

S


PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Motherhood's
sister reaches out
I still treasure and wear
the cultured pearl necklace
my Aunt Sue gave to me as
a gift for my 16th birthday.
But, even fonder are the
memories of when my moth-
er's sister mothered me
(along with other aunts too
numerous to mention in one
column).
I recall when Aunt Sue,
who had only boys at the
time, convinced my Mom to
let me stay with her for a
few days. I was probably a
first-grader. I'll never forget
because she took me for my
first permanent. I can vividly
see my curly-topped school
picture from that grade.
When I took my first job
in New York City, I'd call
Aunt Sue during my lunch
break and we'd talk aunt and
niece stuff.
When divorce toppled my
world some year's later,
Aunt Sue was always there
offering comfort. She felt
my heartache and always
assured me that I had been
brought to "the throne of
grace." She encouraged my
love for singing even
accompanying me at her
church; and, just for the
sheer joy of it, around her
piano at home.
I'm glad my mom's sis-
ter(s) took "aunting" serious-
ly. To me, aunting is the sis-
ter to motherhood. There's
no one like your own mom
who knows you so well and
whom God has specifically
given to raise you.
But being loved and
mothered by her sister is an
encouragement to mother
arid child alike. Aunting is a
noble calling. 'Whethier or
not we have children of our
own, a sibling's children
take up special residence in
an aunt's heart as my
cousins can attest to with my
mom.
Aunts are trusted allies
and good advice givers.
They're fun relatives who
sometimes take your side.
They're giggling compan-
ions or that extra shoulder to
cry on or ear to hear. It's a
relationship that grows more
special throughout the years.
Almost a year ago, my
husband and I had the joy of
reuniting mom and Aunt Sue
after about eight years apart.
That made them hunger to
see each other sooner; and,
just a couple of months ago,

By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
ydney Ruble, 16, is a Sebring
.High School smtdent with a..big
heart. n..
Her compassionate and nur-
turing nature is sensitive to the
needs of children in poverty around the
world. Her heart breaks for the chil-
dren, the mothers and fathers who feel
so hopeless.
While nothing delights a mother's
heart more than her children's laughter
and smiles, many mothers cannot know
such gratification because they are vic-
tims of extreme poverty. Their children
suffer from malnutrition and depriva-
tion of the basics of life including a
safe environment.
Into this bleak situation comes hope
- hope in the form of Compassion
International, a relief organization that
cares for "the least of these."
Compassion International functions to
release the gripping hold of poverty that
can crush a child's spirit and share the
hope and love of Jesus with children in
need. It depends on people sponsoring
and impacting the life of one child.
Ruble is part of this infusion of hope
for a child in India. By touching her
life, the child's family is also affected
positively.

Compassion Sujd:y

rewards
On Compassion Sunday, April 30 and
extending it to Sunday, May 7 with
the help of her youth group friends and
youth leaders, Wayne and Linda
Henderson Ruble ignited enthusiasm
into the congregation of Bible
Fellowship Church to sponsor impover-
ished children living in a developing
country.
"I was just a little bit overwhelmed
because in the little bit of time I had I
wanted to speak the words that God had
laid on my heart. It's wonderful to
know that more children have been
sponsored," Ruble said.
Through Ruble's efforts, 15 children
have been sponsored and several will
be sponsored online. Each sponsor is
personally linked with a boy or girl
who knows his/her sponsor and gets to
correspond with them knowing they
have love and care.
"This has been good for the church,"
Ruble said. "It gets people out of that 'I
need this or that' kind of thinking when
someone in another part of the world
hasn't even heard of the things we
want."
And it will help individual families
as they pour themselves into the life of
a needy child. Ruble knows this first-
hand as she and her family enjoy shar-
ing what Blessy, her sponsored child,
says and the things Ruble writes -
knowing that they are helping someone
in that way.
Just watching families approach the
tables covered with packets that had

Fellowship Church on Compassion Sunday.


children's pictures and biographical
information was rewarding. But when
those families took one or more packets
and committed to sponsoring them,
Ruble's heart leaped for joy.


g- ',. *-- he ,
Following her heart started with
being a part of the support for two
Compassion children, Felipe and
Vanessa of Brazil children sponsored
by the Bible Fellowship Church youth
group.
"Then I attended youth camp and
Compassion presented their ministry. I
visited their table and looked at the
children who needed sponsors. I felt
like this was something I was supposed
to do. I picked up a packet and my par-
ents agreed to help me support her,"
Ruble said.
Blessy Thankaraj of India was 10 at
the time and will be turning 11 in two
months. In the past year, she has been
the recipient of Ruble's sponsorship
that allows her to have her physical,
emotional, educational and spiritual
needs met. She also has a developing
relationship with Ruble, who loves her,


encourages her and believes in her.
Blessy enjoys receiving a couple of let-
ters a month from Ruble.
"I tell her about what's going on here
and she writes back and tells me about
her culture in India. She asks me to
pray for her school and family. She is
happy to let me know what she does
through Compassion, like how she's
learning to play instruments. I wrote
and told her that because I sponsored
her our church is going to even have
more children sponsored around the
world."
As a student herself, Ruble doesn't
have a steady income. But she has seen
God supply ways to help her support
Blessy for $32 per month.
"Baby-sitting, cat-sitting, lawn mow-
ing and the help of my family have
enabled me to get the money together
each month. I try to spend my money
wisely."
Consequently, in the last couple of
months, her parents haven't had to help
her.


Loving C
"I have always loved children,"
Ruble said. "It's so amazing to help


somebody half way around the world
- knowing I'm helping her survive
and she's grov. ing up in Christ. It's so
cool to be able to do that."
This Io'e tor children extends to how
she is looking jt her future career.
Lately she's been thinking a lot about
missions and ho%\ she might be able to
impact children's lives.
"When my friends talk about poverty
in school, I think to myself, 'Wow, I'm
helping with that.' The other day I told
my mom that I was definitely going to
pursue working with Compassion -
maybe as a spokesperson."
Ruble would be a natural as she
loves getting up in front of people and
sharing her heart. Her desire is to do
something to touch different areas of
the world and Compassion is high on
the list.
Even though she's responsible for
Blessy's full support, Ruble snll man-
ages to contribute a few extra dollars to
help with the sponsorship of the youth.
group children. She said Youth Pastor
Wayne Henderson has never had to tell
the youth that there isn't enough money
coming in for the children.
Ruble is happy that her youth group
friends care deeply about the
Compassion children praying for
them and writing letters. Yet, it would
bless her to see them become e en
more involved. .
"Knowing what it's like to sponsor a
child by myself," she said, "I'd like the
rest of the youth to have a more direct
connection, too."
Other youth sponsors include
Michelle Bash, who sponsors a 4-year-
old girl from the Philippines, Leni E,,
Lituanas. She's been sponsoring her for
several months.
"What led into it the most is that I
am adopted," Bash said. "Looking at
where I came from and where I could
have been, I want to reach out and help
other children as much as possible. I
want them to have the knowledge that
someone loves them and cares about
them even when they are going
through complete poverty."
Also, Henderson and his wife Linda
are planning a trip next year to visit the
youth group's Compassion children,
Felipe and Venessa in Brazil. The cost
would be too prohibitive to bring along
the youth, but they will bring their love
to the children and return with much to
share with the youth group who sup-
ports them.
There are a lot of smiles on the faces
of children who now have loving com-
passionate sponsors; and, because of
that, have hope. And mothers will be
smiling as their children's spirits come
alive and their countenances reflect that
life.
Compassion's headquarters are in
Colorado Springs, Colo. For more

Carolyn Hargrove, United Daughters of the Confederacy volunteer, (left) and Phyllis Patterson,
Highlands County Genealogy volunteer, discuss the progress of loading a data base with obituaries from
Highlands County. The obituaries were first collected and assembled into large loose-leaf notebooks.
Patterson and Becky Walls have almost completed the process of loading them so that they will be avail-
able for public use via the Internet. (Site address to be announced later.) The information covers obituar-
ies from 1982 through 2006.


Highlands County Genealogy


Society airs obituaries on Net


LAKE PLACID Phyllis Patterson, of Lake
Placid, is devoting many hours to publicize (via
the Internet) information from Highlands
County's cemeteries.
Already she has loaded into the computer data
base information on all Highlands County
deceased families except those whose surnames
begin with "P," "R" and "S" from 1982 through
2000. Becky Walls is in the process of loading
information from the year 2000 to 2006.
Members of the Highlands County Genealogy
Society have accumulated this obituary informa-
tion from 1982 through 2000 into loose-leaf note-
books. For those not familiar with computers the
notebooks are available for research in the
genealogy department of the Lake Placid Library.
United Daughters of the Confederacy volun-


teers are on duty in that department at 1 p.m.
Wednesday or other days by appointment.
Patterson is there from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Monday and Mike Flood is there from 10 a.m. to
1 p.m. Thursday. For information, telephone the
Lake Placid Library at 699-3705.
Patterson and her husband lived in Naples for
25 years and enjoyed visiting Highlands County
before moving to the Lake Placid area. Naples
was growing too fast for them and since they
enjoyed fishing in Highlands County they decid-
ed on the move to a smaller town. Twenty-three
years ago they moved to Lake Placid where she
joined the Highlands County Genealogy Society.
For three years she, had been working on this
project to help researchers in their quest to find,
their ancestors. ..

ries to your kids or grandkids?
Have you discovered the Helen
Lester series beginning with
"Tacky the Penguin," "Tacky
and the Emperor," "Tacky in
Trouble" and "Tackylocks and
the Three Bears?" Here's a
good dog story "Barker's
Crime" starring a hungry hound
and a very greedy Mr. Gobble,
by writer and illustrator Dick
Gackenbach. Steven Kellogg, a
father of six, knows what he's


writing about in the
story "Can I Keep
Him?" with Arnold,
an animal lover and
liberator. "My Lucky
Day" is the tale of a
small piglet that
knocks on Mr. Fox's
door. Just whose
lucky day is it?
Perhaps it only takes
imagination to be a
hero, and we find out
how it's done in
"Whose Mouse Are
You?" Just in case
you need to know,


this next story is the autobiogra-
phy of a garbage truck, and
that's why it's called "I Stink!"
Laugh with Ogden Nash, an
American poet and humorist
best known. for writing pithy
and funny light verse. We have
his "Bed Riddance," "Everyone
But Thee and Me," "The Old
Dog Barks Backwards," "Santa
Go Home" and "There's
Always Another Windmill."
Ogden also wrote children's


books filled with fun. You'll
enjoy "Custard the Dragon and
the Wicked Knight" or "The
Adventures of Isabel."
"The cornerstone of every
home, the most important part,
is never laid upon the earth but
in a mother's heart." Lydia

Happy Mother's Day to our
mothers, and moms every-
where.

Creating an edible landscape


Have you ever thought of
creating an edible landscape?
Designing and planting an
edible landscape means you
would have a significant
amount of plants you could
actually consume. To take it a
bit further than the pot of culi-
nary herbs by the kitchen door.
And edible landscape would
have fruit trees and vines, vari-
eties of lettuce and peppers,
even edible flowers all min-
gling in just the right amount.
The benefits of an edible
landscape are two-fold. First,
there's the obvious bonus of
having delicious fruits and veg-
etables right at hand. The sec-
ond benefit is the interesting
and dramatic impact such a
design can have on your proper-
ty. Florida's climate can allow
for an amazing variety of edible
plants to be grown in our yards.
Tom Wichman, Florida
Master gardener coordinator,
prepared an outline of creating
an edible landscape of which I


will share some of
his points.
Any landscape can
become an edible
landscape. Choose
for appropriate size.
Today's home prop-
erty is much smaller
in size than those
properties 30 and 40
years ago, so the gar-
dener has to settle for
less land in which to
develop gardens and
landscaping.
Anymore, it's a luxu-
ry to add plants to the


GROWING
SEASON

Highlands
County Master
Gardeners
m


landscape that only offer one
season of interest or one func-
tion in the garden. It really is
becoming almost essential to
find plants that can perform
more than one function in
today's garden. One way in
which to provide form and
function is to add edible land-
scaping.
Plant what you like to eat.
Lawns can be fun, productive,


tasty, beautiful, chal-
lenging, fragrant and
a lot more. By
adding edible plants
to your garden will
increase its interest
and value many fold.
Having something
tasty to look forward
to, new textures and
colors in the landscape
and the satisfaction of
producing food for the
family are all good rea-
sons to create and edi-
ble landscape.
There is no reason to


dig up the whole yard and start
from scratch. Rather, begin by
adding a few edibles here and
there instead of purely orna-
mental plants. After all whether
it is a glass of mint tea or a juicy
red tomato, there is nothing
more satisfying than saying "I
grew it myself."
Whether you're considering
either creating an entire edible


landscape, or just incorporating
a few "goodies" here and there
in your existing plan, be sure to
pace yourself. Growing edible
plants means a real commit-
ment. For one thing, the use of
chemical will need to halt or be
severely curtailed. Pesticides
and herbicides are not advised
for use on plants to be eaten.
This means dealing with pest
and diseases will need to be
handled in a more organic fash-
ion. Many gardeners already
use natural pest treatments and
a method called companion
planting.
Next week I will continue
with companion planting and
how it works.


Anna R. Coley, is a Master
gardener affiliated with the
University of Florida's Institute
of Food and Agricultural

Organic
Agriculture is the economic
base for Highlands County pro-
viding the majority of employ-
ment opportunities and is the
principle tax base for the coun-
ty government. Major agricul-
tural enterprises are citrus, beef
cattle, dairy, commercial flow-
ers and vegetable production.
About 65 percent of the land
use in Highlands County is pas-
tureland, rangeland or cropland.
I recently became aware of a
Web site created by University
of Florida and Florida A&M
University designed to help
small farmers. Small farms rep-
resent more than 90 percent of
all farms in Florida. The Web
s i t e
fttp://smallfarms. ifas. ufl. edu
makes small farm information
easily accessible in one conven-
ient location.
What you can find on the
Web site is information on how
to start a small farm, budgeting,
business planning, financing,
grants, marketing and more.
There is information on specific
farming topics such as green-
house and hydroponic produc-
tion, cut flower production,
livestock production and organ-
ic farming. There is even a sec-
tion about aquaculture.
UF is one of few land-grant
universities with expertise in
hydroponics. At the Live Oak
center in North Florida there are
three greenhouses devoted to

in 1893 with the commercial
production of plumosus fern
(asparagus plumosus). By the

asparagus production had
moved to Pierson in Volusia
County. Rapid growth in the
industry did not begin until
leatherleaf fern, Rumohra adan-

the 1950s. Sales of Florida cut
foliage totaled $83.4 million
during 2003, nearly 77 percent
of the United States total.

Ron Bower


Ron Bower

awarded certified

director status
SEBRING Ron Bower,
director of the Heartland
Harmonizers Barbershop
Chorus, was presented his cer-
tified director document at the
recent Sunshine District
Barbershop convention in
Jacksonville.
Sunshine District Director of
Chorus Director Development
Greg Patterson presented the
award. Bower also will be
assisting Patterson in helping to
develop new chorus directors
throughout the Sunshine
District.
Bower received his formal
training from the Lamont
School of Music at the
University of Denver and he
has been directing barbershop
groups for more than 40 years.
He also had the honor of lead-
ing a barbershop chorus from
Pennsylvania on a three-week
concert tour of communist
Romania in 1974.
To achieve certification,
directors must attend Director's
College in St. Joseph, Mo.,
along with attending local sem-
inars. Knowledge of barber-
shop society history, music the-
ory and leadership principles
must also be demonstrated to
the selection committee.
Bower and his wife moved
to Sebring from Altamonte
Springs early in 2003. Soon
after, he became associated
with the Harmonizers where he
became an assistant director. In
2004, the director at that time,
Jim Ladd, decided to become a
winter guest once again so
Bower assumed the position of
director guiding the chorus
through several successful
shows and an amazing growth
in membership. Bower also
directs a mixed chorus in
Tanglewood called The Waring
Blenders.

'Music in the Park' features Tanya Lambert


Hey folks, Tanya Lambert
will be here at Highlands
Hammock State Park May 20
for the "Music in the Park."
Pack up a delightful picnic bas-
ket or treat yourselves to dinner
at the Hammock Inn, then kick
back, relax and enjoy great
country music under the stars.
Lambert is making her debut
at the Hammock. But just
because this is her first time
performing at the Hammock,
don't think that this pretty lady
is new to country music.
Lambert's been performing for
nearly all her life. She started
singing performances at the ten-
der age of 7. Over the years, she
has performed in many venues;
including festivals, churches
and a wide variety of contests.
Over the 15 years or so that
she's been performing profes-
sionally, she's traveled through-
out the state of Florida and
many of our neighboring states
too. You miy 'have seen her on
one of the various television


shows she's performed
on, or perhaps heard
her on the radio. She
also performed with the
popular band, Raizin,
Kane, at the races and
the 12 Hours of BBQ
here in Highlands
County just a few years
ago.
Lambert's even TH
opened for many popu- F
lar stars of country
music. Just a handful of -
those performers Dor
include, Toby Keith,
Tracy Byrd, Sammy
Kershaw, Ronnie
Milsap, Billy Ray Cyrus and
Joe Diffie. Lambert also was a
2005 Florida finalist for the
Nashville Network's "Nashville
Star" prograni.
Lambert has recorded two
albums, the first being entitled
"No Ordinary Woman." Her
second album, "A New
Creation" 'was also recorded in
Nashville. She said, "Both proj-

and I'm looking
forward to the next
one."
"I really can't
wait to perform at
the Hammock
because I just love
it there and the
people in
Highlands County
are very dear to
me. They have
been so incredibly
supportive of me
over the years that
I've been perform-
ing," Lambert

EDITORIALS/OPI N IONS




Writing at over 30,000 feet


Today's column
was started some-
where between
Houston and
Orlando. I was on a


LAURA'I

Laura


plane as I typed
this, scrunched into
a seat with the edge of the lap-
top against my stomach and my
arms pulled in so that my
elbows don't stick out into the
aisle or poke my neighbor.
I had hoped to get this col-
umn written before they told me
to turn off the laptop so that
when I finally staggered home
all I would have to do was e-
mail it to Romona (Washington,
News-Sun executive editor).
This of course assumed several
things that are dangerous to
assume while traveling.
One assumption was that the
battery on my laptop would not
give out at a crucial moment.
Since the plane does not have a
place to plug in a power cord I
- trusted that my creativity would
- outlast my laptop's juice. It
also meant I had to remember to


save the document
s LOOK often, lest some
wonderful prose
Ware go to Heaven
because my com-
puter shut down.
That was
assuming my brain was capable
of coming up with wonderful
-prose. You see, I did not wake
up in Houston this morning.
That was merely what is called
a layover (though in my case it
was a quick get-reading-materi-
al-and-a-candy-bar over) in my
journey home. No, I woke up in
Portland, Ore. at three in the
morning local time.
Now, there are people like
Don, who can lay down and
command their bodies to sleep
in full confidence that they will
be obeyed. So these people can
go to bed at something like 9
o'clock at night and be in
dreamland in seconds. That
way, when the wake up call
comes at 3 a.m. they have a
functioning brain.
My body and I do not get


along like that. Throw in I had
just finished two writing work-
shops that were fueled heavily
by caffeine and you can under-
stand that when I tried laying
down at 8 p.m. and telling my
body to sleep, my body said
"Huh?"
My body and I had to argue
several hours about sleeping. I
just couldn't manage it. It drove
me crazy, which made it less
likely that I would fall asleep. I
finally drifted off well after
midnight.
This means I had to get up,
dressed, and to the airport while
operating on less than three
hours sleep. Now, 20 years ago
I could have managed it with
minimal problems. But this is
not 20 years ago, and the only
reason I didn't wind up curled
up on an airport floor sleeping
was even more caffeine.
Well, I did not finish the col-
umn before I got the warning to
shut down my electronic
device, so I figured OK, I'll fin-
ish it when I get home (why are


you guys laughing?). I got off
the plane with my stuff, tired
and hypoglycemic (once upon a
time, you could get a full meal
on a plane flight. Not this trip)
and facing finding my suitcase,
my car, and a long drive back to
Sebring.
After getting some food in
me, I located my suitcase and
got reacquainted with Florida
heat and humidity while wait-
ing for the shuttle that would
reunite me with my car. I found
my car and Sebring without too
much trouble, though by the
time I got home I was pretty
close to a zombie.
So I collapsed last night and
am now typing the end of this
column on Thursday morning.
My hope is to get it finished and
e-mailed before I fall back
aslezzzzzzzzzzzzz.

dent. She can be contacted by

It is still her

bread, butter
Editor:
The American Association of
University Women Educational
Foundation recently asked
adult children about the finan-
cial security of their mothers. It
turns out that people whose
mothers have not yet reached
retirement age are not fully
aware of the significance of
Social Security in their moth-
er's retirement.
In some cases adult children
underestimate the importance
of Social Security to their
mothers, and their own retire-
ment security. Yet the vast
majority of older women (90
percent) receive Social
Security, and. for rnst.f hem,.,
it is the largest source of,
income. Overall,- Social
Security makes up more than
half the income of women ages
65 and older.
.The current Social Security
system is more than just a
retirement program; across the
lifespan, it is one of the most
successful anti-poverty pro-
grams in our nation, s history,
providing benefits to many
children, disabled workers, sur-

D o- .


giving spouses, and retirees.

Unlike most government
programs, Social Security has a
large trust fund to ensure that it
can pay promised benefits.
Currently it can pay all benefits
up to 2040 without any changes
to taxes or benefits. After that,
the program is still able to pay a
higher benefit than retirees cur-


rently receive.
Social Security privatization
plans have recently been
thwarted but the threat is not
over. President Bush's 2007
budget includes a plan for par-
tially privatizing Social
Security. This proposal would
substantially reduce Social
Security benefits and signifi-
cantly increase the national


debt.
We can never repay our
mothers, but we can try to
ensure that she is financially
secure throughout her lifetime.
Mothers may like chocolates on
Mother's Day, but Social
Security is still her bread and
butter.

* If you had to pay your moth-
er an annual salary for her daily
domesticated. duties, would
you? Would you know how
much her services were worth?
Or do you take her for granted
and say she is required to do it
at no cost. That's what mom's
do; they give free services to
the family, the neighbors and
the neighbors' neighbor.
Well, I have news for you,
being a mother is hard work as
she multi-tasks daily.
A mother is CEO, nurse,
pharmacist, chef, housekeeper,
teacher/coach, childcare
provider, to list a few. '-
According to Salary.Com, a


f.mpm-nn


national Web site that rates
salaries according to the state
and area using 33870 zip code,
if mom were to be given a


salary on Mother's Day, the
paycheck would be valued at a
whopping $146,464.
A week's worth of work
breaks down as follows:
housekeeper, 22.1 hours; day
care center teacher, 15.7 hours;
cook, 13.6; computer operator
I, 9.1; laundry machine opera-
tor, 6.7; janitor, 6.3; facilities
manager, 5.8; chief executive
officer, 4.2; van driver, 4.2;
psychologist, 3.9; all jobs com-
bined, 91.6.
So, the next time your moth-
er gets too tired to do the laun-
dry, or is unable to transport
you and your friends to the ball,


game, or did not prepare dinner
on time, remember that being a
"dedicated, good mother" is no
easy feat.
She has to be able to multi-
task and be in control at all
times.
Stop whining when things
don't go your way. You owe her
a lot.
Show appreciation not only
on Mother's Day, but all year
through. Mothers are on call 24
hours daily.

Good reading from Janette Oke


I'm in love with
Janette Oke books,
especially the ones
set back in the
1800s. No, if I had

to live that way
now, I wouldn't last a day.
Women think they have it
rough today? Try going to the
'crik to do the washing, catch-
ing a chicken, killing it and
making it for supper, milking
the cow to drink for breakfast,
teaching your own children
unless you were blessed to have
a teacher and schoolhouse in
town and hopefully the 'In'juns
didn't beat a warpath to your
log house, ready to skin some
heads.
Let's not forget the blizzard
winters- when you had to shop
ahead of time for weeks' or
months' worth of supplies
because the weather kept every-
one homebound. Try getting to
town to the post office with a
horse and buggy.
What about the parson? If
you wanted to get hitched, you
could have to wait up until a
year for the parson's once-a-
year visit with the folks.
Otherwise, as far as "Sunday
meeting," someone who was
considered a "God-fearing"


man was chosen to
JARGON give weekly devo-
tionals of some
ennison sort. How about
sending your
young'uns off to
God knows where ... with the
chance you'll never see them
again in this lifetime. Yes, those
were the days!
Today, we have dishwashers,
washers and dryers, cars, stores
on every corner, any kind of
church you like to attend, doc-
tors everywhere, hospitals and
now they have drive-through
wedding chapels. What a con-
trast from the "good old days."
So why does that time period
really touch my heart? I think, it
was because everyone pulled
together. Sure there are always
the bad guys in every era of his-
tory and life, but it's the good
guys that get my attention.
Faith in God was the center
of family life. Accepting life as
it was and still thanking God for
his many blessings, like the
turkey the husband hunted and
killed for Thanksgiving dinner,
the pennies saved to buy
Johnny that pair of shoes, the
strength they found to go
through a destructive barn fire
and the community that pulled

together to get the family re-
established.
The principles they lived by,
their commitment to one anoth-
er these values are hard to
come by today. Something in
me longs for that time of life
when life was valued more than
anything else. God and family
are the backbone of this nation.
It's what's left when the
planes ram into our buildings,
when terrorism is threatening to
take over our nation, when peo-
ple in the name of God perse-
cute you because you believe
differently. And I'm not refer-
ring to any faith in particular as
I've seen it from most faiths
that I've known about.
It's time for us to come back
to our roots, to what made
America strong. Things come
and go. We've seen that with all
the hurricanes and terrorist acts
around the world alone.
With Independence Day
around the comer, I hope every-
one out there esteems what mat-
ters most and thanks God for
blessing us to live in this great
country ... it's still the greatest
around.

Drama Camp to feature summr- fun


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Students
signing up for the upcoming
Florida! Outdoor Drama sum-
mer camp are discovering a
schedule filled with plenty of
summer fun mixed with an
opportunity to learn and per-
form.
In addition to the sessions on
12 theatre arts, such as acting,
dance and stage combat, camp
chairpersons Debra Rutledge
and Rita Youngman have
included an authentic archaeol-
ogy dig for ancient artifacts,
picnics, a pool party, a cook-out
and lots of "hang-out" time to
get acquainted with fellow stu-
dents.


News-Sun
SEBRING Charles L.
Bryan, Highlands County tax
collector, has joined several
other Florida counties and will
auction certificates for delin-
quent real estate taxes on the
Internet.
By conducting auctions in
cyberspace rather than at the
county courthouse, Bryan
hopes to sell more certificates
to more people at less cost.
Investors can sit at computers
and submit or withdraw bids
from May 12-30.
On May 31, the sale will
close in batches, allowing bid-
ders time to resubmit additional
bids on previously unawarded
certificates. This means more
convenience, but also more
competition for bidders, and
less expense for government,
Bryan said.
In Florida, unpaid real estate


"We are going to produce a
mini-play called 'Cracker
Boy'," said Debbie Corder,
staff coordinator of the camp.
The play will be given the last
night of the camp. "The kids
will have a great time together
singing, dancing and playing
guitar in this shortened story
about a Heartland teen who
grows up to be Florida's great-
est rancher."
The camp play will highlight
the young life of Jake
Summerlin, Florida's "King of
the Crackers" and will intro-
duce the audience at the per-
formance on Friday, June 30, to
the theme of the major play
about Florida history being pro-


taxes become delinquent April
1 each year, and tax certificate
sales are held on or before June
1. Bidding starts at 18 percent
interest and goes down, with
the lowest interest rate winning.
The winning bidder pays the
taxes owed on the property, and
then gets back the initial invest-
ment plus the interest when the
tax debtor pays.
Using the Internet, Bryan
said, will increase the number
of bidders who can participate
and yield the most favorable
interest rate for the distressed
taxpayer.
Grant Street Group will con-
duct the Internet sale at
www.bidhighlandscounty.com.
The bid site provides a trial
auction, all forms and instruc-
tions, and a toll free number to
Grant Street Group to provide
technical assistance for bidders'
using the Internet sale.

duced at the drama site in Lake
Placid.
"You don't have to be a star
now to enjoy this cainp,"
Corder said, "but, if you enjoy
having fun and want to work
toward being an upcoming
'American Idol,' then this camp
is the place for you."
The camp also will include
sessions for those who like
back-stage theatre work.
Sessions taught by accom-
plished professionals include
sound, lighting, costuming,
make-up, set building, scenery
painting and directing.
Camp fee is $295 for the two
weeks, Monday through Friday,
June 19-30, from 8 a.m. to 3
p.m. Camp sessions and the
Cracker Boy production will be
held at the Lake Placid Center,
South Florida Community
College.
For information, call 465-
3994 or obtain an application at
the office of the Lake Placid
Center, SFCC.

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING America's
aging population reached a
turning point in 2006. One of
the nation's largest generations,
the baby boomers, started turn-
ing 60. According to the Florida
Hospital Lifeline Program as
many as 78 million people con-
stitute the baby boom genera-
tion, and they stand to make an
enormous contribution to the
rich character and wisdom
older adults offer to all of us.
"Baby boomers are among
the millions of mid-life and
older adults who are continuing
to redefine how we age," said
Grace Owens, program manag-
er. "We need to be ready for an
aging population that's as mul-
tifaceted as any in our history."
This May, residents will once
again celebrate Older
Americans Month. This year's
theme, Choices for
Independence, reflects the con-
tinued commitment of the U.S.
Administration on Aging and
Florida Hospital Lifeline
Program to help the nation pre-
pare for a larger aging popula-
tion, and to bolster the efforts of
baby boomers and older adults
to achieve healthy aging.


Independence for adults as
they age relies on a balance of
important elements: empower-
ment in consumer choice;
healthy, lifestyles that empha-
size nutrition, physical activity,
prevention, and active partici-
pation in one's health care; and
access to the tools necessary to
support independent living.
One such tool is Lifeline.
Lifeline users wear a light-
weight, waterproof button. If
they require assistance, they
only have to press this button to
signal their Lifeline Home Unit
to dial our 24/7 Response
Center. There caring and fully
trained Personal Response
Associates have all the medical
and personal information to get
the appropriate help quickly.
"Helping people live with
confidence is a mission we hold
close to our hearts and one that
all of us take seriously. We are
proud to support the active and
independent lifestyle of older
adults in our community,"
Owens said.
If you would like more infor-
mation about Lifeline for your-
self or someone you care about,

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
May 13, 2001: Henry
Crutchfield was announced
as the next inductee into
the Highlands County Golf
Hall of Fame. After his son
became interested in golf
in the early 1950s,
Crutchfield noticed a lack
of organized tournaments
in the Heartland. Touring
Florida tournaments from
Tallahassee to Miami,
Crutchfield looked to set
up a similar tournament in
Sebring. The 46th annual
Crutchfield Junior Citrus
Championship took place
July 20-21.

15 Years Ago

Florida Intercollegiate
Athletic Conference All-
Freshman team. A pleasant
surprise for Webber
College, Simmons started
all 31 games for the
Warriors and averaged
14.9 points per game. At

ond in the conference with

Bayview knocks off


Lions in slow motion


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING It was hard to tell
what was growing faster Friday
night at Max Long Recreational
Complex Bayview's lead or the
infield grass.
In a game that would have had to
speed up to be called slow-paced,
Bayview scored in every inning to
beat the second-place Lions 11-3.
The final pitch was thrown two
hours and 40 minutes after the first.
Bayview's Daniel Ware struck out
11 and had three hits to lead the
offense, chasing home the first run of
the game when he reached on an
error that allowed Josh Gomez to
score in the top of the first.
Alex Forde walked and scored on
Gomez's fielder's choice in the sec-
ond, and Ware doubled home Ryan


McNew in the top of the third hour
uhh, inning.
After leaving the bases loaded in
the second, the Lions finally pushed
across a run in the bottom of the third
when Brad Doty led off with a walk
and scored on Felix Basulto's single
up the middle to make it 3-1.
Bayview (5-3) responded with its
biggest inning of the night, batting
around and chalking up four runs to
take control of 'the game. Zach
Howard's two-out, two-run single
was followed by a two-run double
down. the left-field line from Kyle
Yarbrough that made it 7-1.
Johnny Vega singled home J.T.
Pape for the Lions in the bottom of
the fourth to make it 7-2, but
Yarbrough walked in a run in the top

Devils embracing Perkins' system

Avon Park coach Earnest Perkins talks to his players during Friday's practice.


New coach putting new philosophy in place this spring


By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
AVON PARK In his 31 years of
coaching, Earnest Perkins has helped
his athletes face many fears,
Hard-hitting linebackers with
foam at the mouth. Fourth and long
with the game on the line. Searing
lungs during two-a-day conditioning
sessions.
With all the daunting on-field chal-
lenges, nothing compares to a morn-
ing at the Orange Bowl Prayer
Breakfast in Miami several years
back.

we're sitting in this big, beautiful

Radisson ballroom with all the other
athletes and all the big recruiters. I'm
looking down the line at the kids at
the table and they're looking at fin-
ger-bowls and what have you and not
knowing what to do," said Perkins.
"First thing Monday morning, I
told my wife, 'I've got to find some-
one to help me to teach these boys
about etiquette."'
It seems far removed from gridiron
priorities, but this was the impetus
for the "Dress for Success" program
that has garnered national attention
for Avon Park's charismatic new
coach.
The program demands higher stan-

codes and 5:45 a.m. weight training.
Perkins' philosophy of building
character and developing high-school
student-athletes who present them-
selves as gentlemen takes precedence
over all else.,
The Red Devil players have
embraced the system. With the high-
minded beliefs in place, the time has
come for Xs and Os as spring prac-
tices are under way in preparation for
the Saturday's game at Crescent City.

Alan Jay squad


rallies for win

Rebounds from early

4-1 deficit to win 6-4

BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK First baseman Dylan
Sanders bounced and handful of ground balls
across the diamond to his teammates. Second
baseman Matt Randall kicked around some
dirt with his cleats. Mike Smith tossed the
remainder of his warm-up pitches before
yelling coming down".
The significance of Friday night's game
wasn't that Alan Jay was three outs away from
closing their fifth win of the season. But after
forfeiting two games earlier in the season
because not enough players showed up, the
fact that the team was on the field was good
enough.
And the blue and white made the most of
their presence, scoring five runs in the final
four innings to down Heiring Construction 6-
4 at Durrah Martin Baseball Complex.
Jesse Ouverson went 2-for-2 with a stolen
base and Mike Smith tossed five scoreless
innings in relief, struck out seven and allowed
only two hits to pick up the win for Alan Jay.
The righty was called to the bump in the top
of the third inning to keep Heiring
Construction (1-6), which had already built a
4-1 lead, from getting any further in front.
Matt Owens started the trend with an
inside-the-park home run down the right-field
line in the bottom of the first inning to tie the
game 1-1.
One inning later, his team plated three more
runs to take its largest lead of the game.
Houston Keen led off with a walk and, after
stealing second, was pushed to third when
Fernando Perez walked and Rajod Lawrence
singled to load the bases. Lacy Turner then

SEBRING The Kenilworth

week.
The inaugural Semper Fi

Held at the Turtle Run course at

will be a rare and fun opportunity
for younger and older soldiers to
get to know each other, swap some

friendships while competing in a
fun-filled tournament.
The cost for the tournament has
been kept to just $25 per golfer,
which includes the 18 holes of
golf, a simple buffet luncheon with
the entire band afterwards and
small prizes for the teams with the
best overall scores.
"We really wanted to do some-
thing special for our veterans when
the band comes to town, so this
tournament seemed like a fun way
for the Marines to 'meet and greet'
many of our residents," said Don
Elwell, general manager of the

May means it's



panfish season


The month of
May means it is pan-
fishing time here in
the south and our
favorites are
bluegills and shell-
crackers. The top
producing months in
this area are May,
June and July and
you can catch them
in just about any
lake or stream in
Florida.


OUTDO

Lloyd J


The lake levels are low right
now due to our long dry spell
and the rain on Tuesday did lit-
tle to bring them up. The lower
levels will make finding the
bluegills just a bit harder.
They are probably scattered all
over the lake, but with a little
patience you will find them. As
for bait, I think the two best
are live crickets and worms. I
know some bass anglers won't
agree with me when I say fish-
ing for bluegills and shell-
crackers is as enjoyable as bass
fishing but I love fishing for
Those little battlers.
- It doesn't really matter what
Jind of tackle you use but a
-light-action, 6-foot rod with an
bpen-faced reel with 6- or 8-
pound line is my choice. You
can catch just as many panfish
with a cane pole and light line


using the same bait.
If you are inclined to
use artificial baits for
bluegills, try a very
: small curly tail grub
on a jighead. It has
worked for me,
though I still prefer
live bait..
The shellcracker is
0R a red-ear sunfish. It
is one of the larger
ones members of the pan-
fish family. It is
called shellcracker due to its
feeding on mussels and crus-
taceans. They bed from March
into May on hard bottoms of
gravel or shells in shallow
water. Bedding times vary,
depending on conditions, and
can extend on into July.
They ordinarily spawn
before the bluegills. If you boat
near a shellcracker bedding
area, you can smell them. So if
you suddenly perceive a fishy
odor, you are probably near
their bedding area.
In lakes with healthy popu-
lations of shellcrackers, you
can find many nests tightly
packed over a large area.
This little scrapper grows to
more than 2 pounds with a
record of more than 5 pounds.
They feed on the bottom, so
you'll need to use enough


Courtesy photos
Rose Wilier (left photo) caught this 29-inch-long, 12-pound, 1-ounce
bass in Lake Istokpoga recently, and Marilynn Slater (right photo)
caught her 11-pound, 3-ounce bass in Lake Denton on May 7.


weight to keep your bait in
their feeding zone. A floater
might be an asset if you peg a
worm adding just enough
weight to keep it on the bot-
tom.
A fly rod and a little pop-
ping bug can really make your
day when the bluegills are
feeding on top. At times a
light-weight spinning outfit
using light spinners or small
jigs in bright colors is just as
enticing to the bluegills.


There are other members of
the panfish family that I
haven't mentioned because the
bluegill and the shelleracker
are the favorites of most fisher-
men in our area. Another very
popular panfish I failed to
mention is the crappie. Many
.thousands were taken from
local waters this past season
and I think all would agree
along with its beautiful mark-
ings, when cooked, it has a
gourmet flavor.


The panfish family is made
up of many others including
longer sunfish, shadow bass,
pumpkinseed, green sunfish
and the warmouth. All these
little fish are colorful.
The longer is also called
the redbelly. The male often
has a fire engine red belly and
an olive green back with small
spots of yellow. He is a work
of art with a darker green and
emerald blue head.
The shadow bass is colored


much like a crappie and is also
called a goggle-eye because of
its bulging eyes. He is a tough
little scrapper reaching up to 8
inches in length.
Any of the panfish make a
great meal, so you won't ever
be disappointed with your
catch when served up at dinner.

RALLIES
Continued from 1E
drove home Keen with a
groundout and Jamar Torres
launched a two-run double to
make it 4-1.
Torres was Heiring
Construction's lone multiple
hitter, finishing 2-for-3 with
two doubles, two RBIs and a
stolen base.
But Heiring Construction
was blanked through the fol-
lowing five innings, going 2-
for-16 off Smith.
Meanwhile, Alan Jay (5-3)


finally took back some momen-
tum with two runs in the fourth
frame when Nate Orozco
scored on a wild pitch and
Ouverson doubled home Kyle
Komisar to get within one run.
In the fifth, Smith scored the
tying run when a busted
squeeze play left him hanging
between third and home. He
wasn't there for too long, how-
ever, when the ball was thrown
away to allow him to glide
home uncontested.
Ouverson and Toby
Solebello then followed with
RBIs in the sixth inning to give
Alan Jay the two-run cushion.

SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Bayview starter Daniel Ware racked up 11 strikeouts against the
Lions on Friday.


SLOW
Continued from 1E
of the fifth to push the Bayview
lead back up to six runs.
Taylor Townsend led off the
bottom of the fifth with a dou-
ble and scored on Matt
Wilkerson's single as the Lions
loaded the bases with one out,
but couldn't get another run


across the plate, heading into
the final inning down 8-3.
Bayview expanded that lead
in the top of the sixth after Tyler
Joseph doubled and Gomez
reached on an error and both
scored when McNew's infield-
fly-rule pop-up was dropped
and followed by a throwing
error. Ware closed out the scor-
ing with an RBI single up the
middle.

DEVILS
Continued from 1E
with a young group of mostly -
sophomore receivers, Perkins ,
looks to meld the old system
with a more fundamental game
plan. 9
"I'm a meat-and-potatoes
kind of guy. Keep the opponent
off balance and establish that Only 3
running game. When you come
in to take charge of a program, Leathie
you have to look at the past
successes and when a kid $9
throws for 1,951 yards (as Hill J
did last season), you're doing
something right," explained
Perkins.
"We're looking to blend the
two."
As with all four-year football
programs, steady success stems I
from how you replace the play-
ers who have moved on. The
development of the underclass-
men is one thing Perkins views
as a Red Devil strength.
"When you look at the offen-
sive line, you're looking at four i
sophomores and a senior.
They've made some early Ill
strides," said Perkins.. .
"With the defense, it's a mix-
ture of the elder-statesmen and
the new faces. The linebackers 2001 LINl
are all sophomores and one
junior. Then there's the second-
ary.",,
The experienced secondary
looks to shut down the air
attack, with Devin Wilson,
Marcus White and Josh Austin Local Trade-in, Onl
returning. $1
"We should be able to man $ 5 9
up with anyone we play with
that group." 2003 CADI
Wearing his straw hat and his
Red Devil football T-shirt,
Perkins' remembers his transi-
tion with a deep base chuckle.
"Believe it or not, I was a
very happy camper about -s
August of '05. I was looking to Vesl CI
ride up' and down (U.S.) 27 in $219
my Yukon with my cap and my
cigar."
Like all leaders whose time
is not up, Perkins couldn't
resist the opportunity to coach
again.
"The most important thing to
me is seeing children go up to
college. That motivates me
every year."
